  1. The more I think about Spider-Man Homecoming the more disappointed I am.

    Which is a shame for me.

      Dejimon11

      That sums up my thoughts on Age of Ultron and Civil War

    2. Strickerx5

      Really? I thought it was phenomenal. Best MCU movie for me personally. Though, I also didn't go in expecting much admittedly.

      I found it to be a let down and I'm not a fan of how many liberties they've taken with characters.

      I'm also really not a fan of how the film ended. That could have been saved for a dramatic scene in a sequel instead of a Guardians style joke.

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Well the whole movie was basically a comedy more than anything. Even during the intense scenes it was always played as a joke. Sort of liked how lighthearted the whole thing was. Especially with the darker movies like Civil War, you need movies like this and Guardians to level things out and highlight the highs and lows of the universe.

      They knew that whole plot point at the end would have been super cliche to watch play out so why not use it as a joke and work it out off screen?

      I see what you mean about the liberties but honestly, I just see it as how a Spider-Man would work in the MCU. While definitely different from the norm, everything was well explained.

      Spiderman has always been equal parts comedy and tragedy, heck his origin story is tragedy.

      The plot point at the end wouldn't have been super cliche as we haven't seen that happen before, in the comics it had her find an experienced Peter wounded and passed out in bed. Which gives the scene the brevity required for such a game changer.

      I consider what they did as inappropriate as when they did the Pac-Man joke in Guardians 2 just for a laugh.

    6. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Eh, I don't know man. I laughed at it so I can't be mad. It's just, I've seen that plotline play out so many times before in other things. The hero has a secret identity that a loved one doesn't know about and they have to keep it a secret until it always blows up in their face and ect. ect. you know he's going to keep being Spider-Man and she's going to become ok with it after a while. I'm personally glad we're not seeing it this time around.

      Like, I know it can be done well and I understand you for wanting to see it but I'm just more excited about what comes after it.

      And I honestly forgot about that Pac-Man thing at the end of Guardians 2. Though, while I didn't really hate the movie nor the joke, it definitely didn't hit home for me either like this did.

      oh, and SHIT SPOILERS ABOVE

      hope Deji doesn't see this before the movie...

    7. Boomer

      I laughed at it too. But it left such a bad taste, like the ending with the first TASM did. But as is still such a vital part of high school Spider-Man. Which they were blaring on about it being great to finally have a Spiderman who grows up alongside the character.

      And I mean now with Ned and now this there's not much point in the whole SI thing.

      Such a big scene with so much lasting impact should have been given the respect it deserved, not to be done in about two seconds for a gag.

    8. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Thank God I didn't see this

  2. Just when I thought the Pokemon anime couldn't get any worse than a second Mewtwo...

    1. BlueTidalGamer

      BlueTidalGamer

      The new movie?

    2. Boomer
    3. BlueTidalGamer

      BlueTidalGamer

      Sounds about right.

      The teams that handle the movies feel completely separated from the TV team. The movies, in general, have never been all that good anyways. 

    4. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Boy I can't wait till people constantly force a Segway to shit on the anime years down the line again. 

    5. BlueTidalGamer

      BlueTidalGamer

      I tend to ignore the movies so they won't affect my view on the TV series.

      Granted I've only really loved the XY seasons, but I can at least say the TV show is clearly better.

       

      Yet to start Sun & Moon proper yet. I kinda burnt myself out with marathoning XY.

      Most of the anime isn't. 

      XY is the only time i've ever enjoyed it.

    8. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      @Princess Jellicent I can't believe you're saying that on a forum where we talk about the most controversial video game franchise of all time

    9. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      NO WAI! :P

      Hell we throw a lot of shit at each other! Let's throw more for the lulz! :D

      Look man all I'm saying is we are in no position to bash anything...like at all

      @Dejimon11 How do you come to that conclusion?

      Wow, I almost didn't recognise him because of the red arm.

  4. Just saw Spider-Man Homecoming. It was ok, fair few issues with it though.

    If I were to rank the films it'd be

    Spider-Man 2

    Spider-Man

    Spider-Man Homecoming

    Spider-Man 3

    The amazing Spider-Man

    The amazing Spider-Man 2

      GucciBurr

      what score/grade would you give it

    2. Boomer

      Boomer

      A 7

    3. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Wait an A = 7? wait kind of grading system is that?

    4. Boomer

      Boomer

      A seven.

      You happy?

    5. Speederino

      Speederino

      That's basically my own tier list, although I'm not seeing Homecoming until tomorrow. But from what I'm hearing, I doubt it will top the first two Raimi movies for me either.

  5. Well at least this is the first game I can stand Jess Harnell as Crash...

    1. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Yeah he works better with the more subtle approach instead of the baby babble (though I liked how his Crash slipped in some English every now and then).

  6. I'm enjoying Crash but the loading screens make going for time run gems pretty annoying.

  7. I'm in the same boat as you, even with ordering it from Amazon! Can't really complain though as with some discount I managed to snag it for £23.

      8-bit Skyrim. I can't even begin to imagine

  9. Well I've got an invite for the Battlefront 2 Closed Alpha, neat!

    It's available tomorrow.

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Huh, I got one too. Cool!

    2. Boomer

      Boomer

      Cool. It can be played in about 8 hours time.

      Up for playing it together at all?

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Man I'd be down! Though, can't say I've ever been good at Battlefront.

    4. Boomer

      Boomer

      Good thing it's just an Alpha then! :P

      Just sent you a request.

      I'm just warning you man. XD

    6. Boomer

      Boomer

      I'll be able to pick you up.

      And I mean look at this

       

      And this was me on PS4. So on PC, woo boy...

    7. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Damn man, I'm just going to stay behind you then. Though, my internet has been acting up lately. We'll see I guess.

  10. If that was you on the phone and you on the bus then who was flickering the lights?

  11. Taskmaster is an amazing show and you should all go watch it.

      A hound and a terrier.

      I bet the moment they go outside, they're hunting buddies.

    2. Boomer

      Boomer

      The hound is terrified of her own shadow and the other one is a puppy. My bets would be on the rabbit :lol:

    3. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      xDD Oh no, poor beagle!

    4. Boomer

      Boomer

      Yeah she was a rescue dog. She's just over 3 and already had 3 litters...

    5. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Good on you for rescuing her. <3

  13. Ahahaha

  15. A reminder that custard creams are top tier biscuits.

      How did you know I bought a pack for a snack?

      Bourbon biscuits are wannabe custard creams

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Custard creams are too squat to make for comfortable dunking in tea. Disgestives, though delicious, are often too large to fit into many conventional mugs and cups. And pink wafers simply so not mix with tea. The bourbon is the perfect biscuit. 

    5. Boomer

      Boomer

      You need to get yourself a Sports Direct sized mug for optimum digestive dunkage.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I have one. It is not a conventional mug and is far too large for a single cup of tea. 

    7. Boomer

      Boomer

      More tea is never a bad thing.

      Also it better be Yorkshire Tea boi

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's obviously Yorkshire tea. Surely you don't take me for a filthy Lipton drinking swine from the colonies?

      More tea is never a bad thing, unless it's all piled into one large mug with a greater surface area that will allow heat to dissipate very quickly unless you guzzle the tea without appreciating it's flavour. Small cups, or mugs, are sufficient. We have tea pots for when a single cup isn't enough.

    9. Boomer

      Boomer

      I'd rather Lipton than Tetley's or PG Tips...

    10. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Lipton Tea is like soap. Tetley and PG are palatable at least. Yorkshire is the obvious winner though, and Typhoo comes a respectable second.

  16. Ahahaha

      Lmao! I would love a super hero movie thats all about how the citizens react to all of the chaos that happens during super hero movies XD

  19. Also you may now want PSVR due to Skyrim...

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Eh, maybe? Not a system seller for me at this point but if I ever had a VR, I'd probably check it out.

  20. Pretty much

  21. Can't wait to see some gameplay of Spider-Man.

      Downgrade incoming...

    2. Boomer

      Boomer

      It's Insomniac so it'll be fine.

      Same, it's second only to Mario Odyssey in terms of games I want  to see in action.
